-boggling to america, who has no sense of history -- [laughter] -- that they would be obsessing about this bill. i have no doubt that this will be another pandora's box that will inevitably be opened. there will be millions of south koreans and north koreans holding property deeds for land in north korea. my mother-in-law was born in orchards, you know, a wealthy landowner, and she knows where she lived. i think this is going to be another difficult issue to resolve, and given that they have had 65 years to get it right with japan and have not gotten it right, that does not make me very optimistic that they will be able to resolve this in a quick or efficient manner. i do not think it will be able to have this blanket declaration of new claims to be taken. i do not think that will fly. they will have to find some way to accommodate and i do not know how they are going to do that at this point. add that to the list of headaches. >> time for one last question if any remain. there was one back here. >> i know it is a big topic, but in terms of the political culture that varies so vastly between north and
